Director's Comments

This is our (late) entry to THAC 8. Due to running out of time in post-production, we were not able to finish the film within the time limit. However, due to our "ambition," we finished the editing today and, well, here it is!

Staff Review

Graeme Allen:
Normally, devices such as the "Ambition Gun" are designated as laziness on the part of the writer, but here, it seems the BuilderBrothers are actually acknowledging why, in-story, these devices are such a bad idea anyway. This results in a rather entertaining film, especially given that the film was made in little more than 24 hours.
